“Wonderful good and great wine”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 22, 2013

I was a little dissapointed that they didn't have a more varied CA wine list, but the CA wind we did have was great and the food was incredible. Both my husband and I loved our food and I wouldn't say we are foodies, but we do enjoy great meals at home and while traveling. This restaurant stands out.

“great food, clueless waiter who didn't know the menu”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 17, 2013

delicious food, quick service, but the waiter was clueless about the menu and could barely answer any of our questions, even simple ones. you'd have thought they'd train their waiters on the menu.

“Wonderful ambience”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed October 6, 2013

This is a very cozy restaurant with wonderful ambiance. It was packed when we arrived so thats a good sign. The food was good but nothing spectacular. Our server was very good though.

“second visit 5 years on”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 5, 2013

We originally visited Frascati in 2008. We returned last month as part of our honeymoon.
We were actually given the same table as our original visit.
We really enjoyed this visit as we did in 08.
The stand out factor was the service from our waiter a guy whose name unfortunately I don't recall
however it was a Spanish name.
This guy is a credit to the business and was so professional and genuine as opposed
to the forced niceness you see in many restaurants.
The food was good with the highlights being the Duck salad & roast Chicken.

Part of the reason we returned too Frascati was the lovely memories from our first trip
we now have lovely new memories.

Thank you Frascati.

“A find on Russian Hill”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 2, 2013

We happened to walk by this restaurant on our travels and it looked really nice so we booked. This is a neighbourhood restaurant in an upmarket residential area, so it is a bit off the beaten track in some ways. But the cable car goes right past the door of this Hyde Street restaurant. It was mainly local people eating here and we liked that.We were encouraged when the taxi driver said it was a good restaurant, and indeed it was. Great service, well presented food with lovely clean flavours. If I could give it four and a half stars I would have.
